Messes To Miracles

Genesis 1:1-2

1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

At this point the earth was chaos. There was no order. God has not entered into the creative process of creating the order and beauty in what we now call Earth. God was over the chaos and when He entered the chaos, the chaos then became order. Out of the chaos then became beauty. Nothing has changed since then.

The chaos in our lives is still active. Even though we see a situation as chaos, we can’t see the bigger picture, God can. As He did with the chaos of the world, He will do with the chaos of our lives. God is watching over our chaos, we think we are doing it alone when in reality, we just need to ask God to intervene and then He will orchestrate order and beauty out of the chaos in our lives. He will redeem. That’s what He does.

He turns messes into miracles. That’s what we are. Without Him we are a mess but with Him we become the beautifully made miracle.
